A nice compact design that initially took good pictures
3 December 2014
Summary: A nice compact design that initially took good pictures. With rather minimal usage, in less than two years it broke in a way that caused it to badly overexpose pictures in bright light. Looking at the web, it appears that others have had the same problem and there is no simple fix.
I guess now it's pretty much garbage because will not spend that again

Summary: Soo many problems already. Broken flash, black screen. I've had it less than three years and already spent $100 to fix it. I guess now it's pretty much garbage because will not spend that again.
Bought this camera for my girlfriend so she could record a concert

Summary: We found this camera after watching a few youtube videos using this camera to record other concerts. She knew that most camera's microphones would distort loud audio such as that encountered in a live performance. After looking through several youtube videos we zeroed in on this model since it was at a good price and didn't seem to lose audio quality. She took it with her to the concert and has been thanking me for it ever since!
One of the best P&S cameras except for one feature

Summary: This Sony model has been one of my all-time favorite cameras. Easy for anyone to use on either of the Auto selections. Takes bright, sharp photos and excellent videos. The menu system is intuitive. It has the Sony G lens which is a great lens. Focuses fast, somewhat quick to recycle so you can take the next picture (as long as you use a Class 10 SDHC card). It's a little thick so it may not fit in your pocket. Not made in China - made in Thailand.
Summary: I bought this camera to use for our school sports team. I take pictures and video, edit them, and make slideshows. I particularly love the video on this camera; it's crystal clear and great quality. I would definitely buy this camera again because it's a perfect travel camera for our team and takes great pictures and video.
Summary: This Sony GPS-enabled digital camera is perfect for the work I do, which is Archaeology. Not only does it produce very crisp images, I can view where I took the images on Google Earth. This is a major advantage when trying to re-locate or describe a location to someone. I would recommend this camera to anyone who performs fieldwork and where field images are important forms of communication.
Summary: I had a nikon S6100 before I bought this HX7V but I didn't like it because of its slow shutter speed and the functions it had, so I dicided to buy this one and since the moment I took it out of the box I loved it. Great point n' shoot camera, im used to carry around my dslr and this is a great choice for a compact carry on camera.
